The "Minuet of Forest" is a recurring Song in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Ocarina of Time

The "Minuet of Forest" is a Warping song taught by Sheik when Link first enters the Sacred Forest Meadow as an adult. When played on the Ocarina of Time, it warps the Link to the Triforce Warp in the Sacred Forest Meadow, right before the entrance to the Forest Temple.

Even though the song warps to the Sacred Forest Meadow, the message appearing after playing it asks if Link wishes to warp to the Lost Woods.[2] This was corrected in Ocarina of Time 3D.[3]

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the "Minuet of Forest"'s notes sometimes appear on a wall in the northern part of Termina Field, where Link can play a song for Rupees.
